Yes its the Govt Emergency No, and to all you Twats that think its an intrusion in your life, suggest you need to get one (a life that is). Really, have you nothing better to complain about. Probably the same Twats that think Covid is just a Flu. Suggest you hop on a Plane to the O'l USA where you can enjoy your freedoms and probably catch Covid and help raise the worlds IQ level. Emergency Alerts are sent by emergency services to landline telephones based on the location of the handset, and to mobile phones, based on the service address. In the case of an emergency, you may receive a voice message on your landline or a text message on your mobile phone. If you receive an Emergency Alert and want more information, follow the instructions in the message or find your local emergency service on this website. Caller: 0444 444 444
To 49er, in the time that it took you to bash out your trivial tirade you could've: a) stopped and considered what this text service actually is [hint: it's a potential lifesaving alert]; b) considered how they got your number [they didn't - it'll work on a triangulation basis or similar]; c) how often they contact you (not often at all), d) considered finding something more worthwhile to get frothy about. Just a suggestion.
Received an SMS purporting to be about police supposedly looking for someone and a dodgy link. Blocked the number and will contact the actual police if these scammers persist. Get out of my life. I have NEVER asked for your 'service' and find it intrusive and objectionable.
I will decide if and when I need to plan for whatever emergency there might be.
Block the number.
Emergency Broadcast Notification Roscoe - Yes because knowing that an 71 year old is missing on foot three hours drive away from my house at 7AM on a Sunday morning is totally not an intrusion on anyones life. The probability a 71 year old has walked 3 hours drive to my place is 0. I love how you so neatly tuck everyone who disagrees with you into a box though, it must make it easier to dehumanize people you dislike. Personally I think its a scam by police to check the whereabouts of individuals or too plant spyware on your phone.
I have 2 mobile phones but only one received the message.
Caller: 0444 444 444
Its probably an attempt to plant spyware on your phone, when they can't get a warrant or are on a fishing expedition, so they use some heartwarming bullsh*t such as a missing person as a cover
Does luke bonner still work at radio 2gb. Bit harsh Roscoe. The authorities don't advertise this number like they do the 000. They send you an unsolicited SMS wanting you to click on a link. Scammers prey on human weakness. In this day and age I think the police aren't above abusing this service in targeting individuals or groups for spyware like flubot. Its legit. Firefox would not open the internet link, it warned of a possible scam I got a message about a missing child and when i searched online there was actual news about the missing child on australian online news My Mum received a text message saying she is COVID positive! She hasn’t been tested and rarely goes anywhere; ?????? This number is for emergency purposes. That there's an emergency within the area you are from and people within the vicinity should be cautious. You should be grateful that you are given a warning. Funny that there are lots of "Karens" out there... keeps complaining and yet getting money from the government. Get a lifr people. This is definately what that number should be used for to save lives it's the emergency alert system Scam of police wanted notice
Don’t click any link they sent, it’s malware virus will steal your private information, especially on Android phone. Block the phone number and delete the message immediately.
They targeted elders and curious rule follower people. Luckily I’m not.
Here is what they sent:
Police are searching for Jade Maybury, 25yo man, last seen in Morisset area on 8/9. 160cm tall, medium build, red/ginger hair, wearing light coloured shirt. Image at http://bit.ly/3l1v0Pl
Call 000 immediately if sighted.
Hi Roscoe, " yes its the govt emergency no" would have been appropriate and helpful but the reminder of your comments is a bit rich ( some might say 'narrow minded' ) or immature to say the least.
